Health Tip: Protect Your Sight

Go for regular eye exams

(HealthDay News) -- Protecting your vision must be a "priority just like eating healthy and physical activity," urges the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The agency suggests how to keep your eyes healthy:

  • Schedule regular eye exams that include dilation; be aware of your family history of eye problems.
  • Eat healthy foods that boost vision, such as dark, leafy green vegetables and fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight, and don't smoke.
  • Protect your eyes with glasses or goggles when playing sports, doing yard work or during home repair.
  • Wear sunglasses that block harmful UVA and UVB rays.
  • Thoroughly wash hands before handling contact lenses, and properly disinfect contacts before using.
